Enlightening altered book by Virginia Beach artist Maggie Kerrigan

Continuing my play with the idea of lights and books….I worked out a way to create an actual working lightbulb out of the book paper.  The lightbulb, though only paper, does light up thanks to a tiny strand of LED bulbs inside it.  The battery pack has been carefully hidden within the book pages.

Enlightening is made from the book Soul Mates. The book seemed fitting to the theme–perhaps there is a moment when the light goes on and a person realizes that the friend right next to him or her is not just a friend but a soulmate.  

I enjoy finding ways to push and pull between the artwork and the book used to create it.
